Popcorn

snack food

Popcorn is a snack food made by heating certain kinds of corn. There is a small amount of water inside the seeds, which causes them to explode. When the seed shell breaks a sharp noise is made. The name "pop" is because of this noise. After it pops it is white and fluffy.

Kernel chokingEdit

Many accidents of choking on popcorn kernels were reported.[1] This is because the popcorn kernel does go into the airway and throat, and gets stuck. Many people want other people to take kernels out of the popcorn for children.[2]

pre-popped and home poppedEdit

Popcorn that is already popped when you buy it is usually tastier and puffyer than just }buying popcorn kernals and popping them with a microwave
